美国有一架小型飞机坠毁，与一辆汽车碰撞并发生大火，机上五人当场死亡，包括著名体育女记者Carley Ann McCord。
大批救援人员接报后赶到现场，发现五人当场死亡，一名37岁男子获救，与地面的三人被送往医院救治，其中一人是被小型机撞到的汽车司机。Carley Ann McCord的丈夫证实她的死讯。
A member of the WDSU Sports team was killed in a plane crash Saturday, according to family.
Carley McCord’s husband confirmed to The Associated Press that she was riding in a private plane from Lafayette to the Peach Bowl in Atlanta with friends to watch LSU play Oklahoma.
McCord, 30, was the daughter-in-law of LSU offensive coordinator Steve Ensminger.
McCord was born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
She was a graduate of Northwestern State University and Louisiana State University.
McCord got her first broadcast job in Cleveland working as an in-house reporter for the Cleveland Browns.
A few months later, McCord was hired by CBS Radio Cleveland to be a morning show cast-member for a morning show on a Hot AC formatted station.
After two years in Cleveland, Carley moved back to Baton Rouge to pursue her broadcast career in her hometown.
She began working for Guaranty Media as a radio host for 100.7 The Tiger and 104.5 ESPN Baton Rouge.
After a three-year stint with Guaranty Media, she made the announcement that she wanted to pursue her sports television career full time.
McCord was a freelance sideline and sports reporter for various networks, including Cox Sports Television, ESPN3 and WDSU-TV.
McCord was the digital media reporter for the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and the in-game host for the New Orleans Pelicans and the New Orleans Saints.
“We are devastated by the loss of such an amazing talent and valued member of our WDSU family,” said WDSU President and General Manager Joel Vilmenay. “Carley’s passion for sports journalism and her deep knowledge of Louisiana sports, from high school to the professional ranks, made her an exceptional journalist.
“As we reflect on her impressive body of work, we offer our deepest condolences to her family.”
“Words cannot express the tremendous amount of sorrow our entire staff holds for Carley and her family,” said WDSU News Director Akili Franklin. “She was an extraordinary woman and a talented reporter. We offer our deepest condolences to her family and friends.”
“She will be severely missed.”

WATCH: School bus loses control, slides sideways down icy road
WDSU Updated: 5:34 PM CST Dec 28, 2019
A bus attached to a small white trailer lost traction and began sliding sideways through an intersection down a road, Saturday in Minnesota.
The video, taken by Neil D. Marriot, shows the bus slowly gliding parallel down Eden Prairie Road, taking up both lanes with a trailer jackknifing behind it. The roads, which were icy according to KMSP, were a likely cause of the bus losing traction. The clip has since been shared thousands of times.
The bus thankfully does not appear to crash into anything during the video, but Marriot does admit it kept him from making it to work.
